San Luis Obispo Engagement Shoot | { Philip + Ruth : part I }

Tuesday, May 31, 2011

Too many great shots to put all into one shoot so I am breaking this one up into two posts!Ruth and Philip met in their dorms freshman year at UCLA. Since then, everything they do together has been a while lotta fun for these two – which is what we really wanted to capture in these shots. They both are very active and  surf, snorkel, fish and all things ocean, and  enjoy traveling (ruth got her fantastic bracelets on their most recent explorations around South America) and taking pictures too.  Their wedding is just a few days away in Big Sur, CA. Can’t wait!

Santa Barbara, CA Wedding | Tom + Tracy

Saturday, May 14, 2011

At the salon the morning of her wedding, Tracy was calm as a summer’s day. As her hair was curled and teased she sat there chatting and giggling with her bridesmaids –  a huge smile on her face. You could tell she was confident, excited, and ready for this day to finally be here. I didn’t get to see Tom till the ceremony, and he had the same eager and excited expression as he waited for his bride to walk down the aisle. They are a fantastic couple and I was happy to be counted among everyone there to support and celebrate their union.  Tom  and Tracy tied the knot at the El Montecito Presbyterian church and then had a beautiful reception at the historic old El Paso Restaurant in downtown  Santa Barbara. Her hair was done at Shear Design in nearby Summerland. Hope to see you both soon!
